Democrats back Dr. Sophia Chadda for Bernards Township Committee

The Bernards Township Democratic Committee (BTDC) has endorsed Dr. Sophia Chadda for a three-year term on the Township Committee. 

“As a local business owner, practicing dentist, and parent of students in elementary school, high school and college, I have a broad perspective,” Chadda said. “With my STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) background, I employ a fact- and evidence-based approach to solving problems and making decisions.
"I want to foster greater communication between elected officials and residents of our town and facilitate the participation of more of my fellow residents in our civic affairs,'' she added. "I would be honored to serve my township neighbors and work to improve our future together.”
